10:31 pm
to sarah perry, the author of the essex serpent. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me arejim waterson, political editor at buzzfeed and the ‘fleet street fox', susie boniface, columnist at the mirror. tomorrow's front pages then, starting with the financial times. it leads on warnings that interest—free credit cards are ticking time bombs. the paper says the comments come from leading bankers. the i reports thatjeremy corbyn will invest £3 billion in education, reversing conservative cuts to the budget. plans to make social media firms like facebook and google pay for the cost of policing digital crimes is the lead story for the observer. the daily express focuses
10:32 pm
on the foreign aid budget. it says £15 million is funding anti—smoking campaigns in some of the world's most corrupt countries . the guardian leads on theresa may's comments on tax. it says the prime minister has signalled a rise in national insurance and income tax, after pledging not to raise vat. so, let's begin! theresa may might have a different view to the eu 27. they are saying that she is on a different page to the rest of the eu. there has been a hardening in the breadth of negotiations last week or so. the eu, shockingly for a union with accord leadership, is swinging
10:33 pm
together as a union with accord leadership against britain. to be is a major selection has resulted to sign by saying, no, you need to elect me if you want to avoid a disaster, swing behind me, don't listen to what they are saying in brussels. how much of this is posturing on both sides? everybody is posturing because nobody has started talking. despite all the arguments since june last year, brexit has not begun, negotiations have begun. article 50 has been triggered but that is not the northern paperwork. there is nothing else you can too bad posture. theresa may has a lack of ability to think on her feet when she is asked a question. when somebody says she is out in space when dealing with the eu, she has to react to that,
10:34 pm
saying that they are on a planet all of their own. she has said, no, i'm very boring... she is the prime minister who does homework, isn't cheap? she is very well prepared, gci’oss cheap? she is very well prepared, across her brief. that is we haven't had tested yet. if this election was held in 2020 wouldn't have gone through two years of brexit negotiations, already be outside the eu and it would've been a vote on whether or not that was a good deal. now we were having an election on whether or not you can trust she will get a good deal. as long as she looks in control, then that is the way she can win the votes. pretty politically good. in the financial times, interest—free credit cards area times, interest—free credit cards are a ticking time bomb, bankers warned. future revenue from higher
10:35 pm
rates looked up front, i don't even pretend to know what that means. why is this a ticking time bomb? and other tactical disaster. anybody with an interest free credit card and a balance transfer, the banks are making money on that because they make a certain calculation about how much money you will have at the end of that deal. the problem they are finding is that people are either paying it off or they are moving the deal to another interest—free credit card and shifting their debt around. basically, the credit card companies to have a lot of debt like this that they are not making money from, they are getting loaded up with that, not making the cash, and the warning is there heading for some kind of crash. why don't they stop offering peace deals? the problem is, if you
10:36 pm
never get the return back on the money and financial institution to teach on the edge again, we have seen this film before. we don't want the banks... the risk is if they lose that that repayment they may become unstable and will have to look at what intervention is needed. this is what banking is about, about making an assumption about future spending and pitting your own money in the right space to capitalise on it. bankers can figure it out, they shouldn't in banking. isn't this the kind of risk that they were be in courage not to keep taking? yes, and it depends who they are giving these interest—free credit cards do. there maybe some people who are just cracking up debts and having bad credit histories and still getting interest—free credit cards. let's look at the daily telegraph.
10:37 pm
theresa may pledge on the vat, but not income tax. philip hammond did not income tax. philip hammond did not like the fact that he was boxed into a cornerfrom not like the fact that he was boxed into a corner from the soul pledged not to raise national insurance contributions and income tax. the original pledge, if you think back to 2015 when david cameron was running for election, apparently he is living in a shared but that is a different story, he ran on a pledge not to raise income tax and national insurance. this time around are confident of a win under one to get rid of these things that boxy into a corner. we are unlikely, but don't know yet because the tory manifesto
10:38 pm
is not i get, the triple lock on pensions will change in some way, we are likely to see the ability to change income tax national insurance. theresa may has said today that she won't raise vat because labour were putting under a lot of on that. that is regarded as regressive tax because everybody has to pay it. to some extent, it is linked to consumption because if you don't consume too much youtube paid too much. but it is a regressive tax. we have not seen properly yet these policies because nobody has published what their policies are or how they were plundered. the conservative party mike weir is things like some taxes to paper social care. the guardian is saying that it social care. the guardian is saying thatitis social care. the guardian is saying that it is considering taxes on very expensive homes. these are the kind of policies that ed miliband's
10:39 pm
labour and of policies that ed miliband's labourandjeremy of policies that ed miliband's labour and jeremy corbyn's labour would be quite keen on having. she is trying to steal the centre ground and bringing in some fairly socialist policies. it'll be interesting to how that plays with the good people of burgess hill and if they believe this is a centre ground conservative party warm weather she is quite a hard right wing conservative party. facebook must pay to police the internet. social media firms may have two paper the cost of policing digital crimes. i could end up being quite expensive. it will be almost impossible to do, as well. the telegraph says that a similar arrangement is in place for football clubs, when there is certain policing on match days, those foot ball policing on match days, those football clubs contribute to that. that is because it is a known fact that match will cause this amount of trouble and you need that blue line around it to make sure things stay
10:40 pm
under control. you can't do that online because you can't predict who will do what to whom, you can predict where the revenge pawn will come out of or if people will start complaining about it. half of all crimes have a social media element. that's was taken by the select committee that that this report together for them to say that facebook should be paid for these crimes to be released. most of the public sphere is running to one or two private networks, facebook, twitter and to some extent google. news and everything is being controlled by one to companies and how you regulate that. our system is not built to deal this. mightjust this suggestion of this kind of cost encourage these businesses to clean airact up, to encourage these businesses to clean air act up, to be cover on the kind of... it is the kind of things that politicians threaten big companies with. this is a report from the home
10:41 pm
affairs select committee which does not have any legislative power, but they say we think this should happen. amber rudd has welcomed it and will look at it carefully, which means, what? excavation might summon from the national police chiefs' council said, well, the details would have to be considered. if you we re would have to be considered. if you were to have police funded by facebook, will they be wearing the same uniform will they have the same powers? will they sent you an emoticon when you have reported a crime, assad face something? it will not work. because a lot of crimes involve a social media element therefore you have to check some things, you will need to have a liaison officers working across these companies, and to save you might contribute somewhat taxes, please! these companies are so powerful now they are almost above
10:42 pm
individual national governments. jeremy corbyn pledges £3 billion to close the education gap. the labour leader vows to invest in children's future, he tells teachers. we don't know where this money is coming from yet. it is an interesting thing. we did not know where the money for donald trump's walls going to come from. still nobody knows. rhys gill got elected. it is entirely possible that ofjeremy corbyn promises the right things people will elect him regardless of the fact it doesn't have funding in place. to be fair to him, he said that he will explain in the labour manifesto— able paper this with heavy hints will be taxes on corporations, cutting down on tax evasion. we have been promised that a lot. basically raising taxes on whoever they can in a reasonable
10:43 pm
manner. the interesting thing is the fa ct manner. the interesting thing is the fact that he is coming up with these pledges and high on earth the tories respond to him. they keep hitting him hard again saying that labour will raise your taxes. the detail of whether the schools need the funding is not what they are going for. they arejust is not what they are going for. they are just trying to hammer home the message thatjeremy corbyn will raise your taxes. there has been so much publicity from headteacher saying that budgets are not sustainable. he is picking up on that. education has been well funded over the last 20 years, it has gone up over the last 20 years, it has gone up over inflation, so the cuts being talked about, 6.5%, although they are swingeing now, we will still be spending more per child used to be. the problem is that school costs are continuing to rise. they have to find some way to square the circle. it will be interesting to see whether this is going to be the kind
10:44 pm
of thing that people are terribly keen on and where it comes from really matters because if you keep saying we will tax big companies, big corporations, big international corporations, the whole reason didn't pay so much tax is because they are based in many different tax
